I’m going to be travelling from this weekend until the 24th November and have just seen the banner asking if I wanted to upgrade to a current account. Whilst I’d love to, my concern is that my prepaid card will not work whilst I am away.
My questions are as follows:
- Will the prepaid card stop working immediately after the switch is requested, or when the debit card is received?
- How long does the process take to receive the debit card to a UK address (requesting the switch to the current account + approval + postage times)?
Given I’ll be travelling again on the 26th my window is very tight. I’m happy to not need the card from the 19th-24th, and as such can arrange for the switch before I return to the UK, but my main concern is that I’ll need it for the 17th-19th as I’ll be in a country where I’d prefer not to bother with cash.
Thanks in advance
